(NEWARK, N.J.) — Authorities in New Jersey say they have arrested a juvenile in the Christmas night shootings of two young teens in Newark.
While a pastor was officiating the funeral of 15-year-old Kasson Mormon, prosecutors in Essex County, N.J., said another 15-year-old had been arrested for the murder.
The juvenile, whose name is not being released, was taken into custody for the double murder of Mormon and 13-year-old honors student Zainee Hailey outside a home in Newark.
Newark is ending the year with its most murders in seven years.
